Our Mission

Futurama is more than just another shop that wants to make money. We are a company on a mission.

Our mission is to create a company that exists to serve and benefit people through the products and services that we offer.
For us Futurama is only the beginning. In the future our company will do much more than just sell products. As we grow we will enter industries that will allow us to create social, economic and environmental change.

Right now, we are working hard to turn Futurama into a world leading store that provides customers with the best possible prices on products, expert advice on what to buy, and outstanding customer service. Your support will help to make this vision a reality, and we welcome you to join us on our journey to the future.

Why the name Futurama?

When we originally started in 2013, our store was called Outdoor Depot and we only sold outdoor products. Outdoor is what we knew well, so it was a logical starting point for us. When we decided to expand our range of products we needed a new name and domain that would represent our focus on providing customers with the latest and best products and our ability to provide expert advice. After endless hours of brainstorming and checking the availability of domain names (almost everything is already taken) we finally decided on Futurama. We got the name from the cartoon TV show called Futurama and felt that it represented what we wanted to achieve perfectly. It combines the words "Future" with "rama" which means "spectacular display or instance of". We want to show and bring people the future.
